MSNBC host calls for ‘political correctness’ after Trump tweets criticism of ‘political correct’ media
MSNBC host Joy Reid called for a “political correctness” backlash on Friday, calling on President Donald Trump to apologize for his tweet attacking MSNBC’s Joy Reid.
“He needs to apologize, he’s a very decent human being,” Reid said.
“I think this kind of thing is a symptom of a larger problem.
I think the American people are tired of it.
We need to move past this, and I think that’s what we’re going to have to do.”
Reid was responding to Trump’s tweet that MSNBC was being treated unfairly by “political correct” media, which she said “isn’t about politics.”
“The term ‘political’ is just an excuse for the political correctness that is being practiced by the mainstream media and the Democrats,” she said.
“If you want to be politically correct, you’ve got to be in line with them and you’ve gotta be afraid to be wrong,” Reid continued.
“If you’re not afraid, you’re going back to where you came from.”
Reide said that while Trump is right to call MSNBC “political,” it should not be “political.”
“I think he is right, the term ‘politically correct’ is an excuse to protect the establishment from criticism,” Reid argued.
“But this is not a political conversation.
This is a moral conversation, and this is a conversation that’s being waged right now.
So, I think we need to look at the political right versus the political left and the moral argument for who’s better.”
